A personalized gift for Mother’s Day from the whole family. Even the ones with the funny names.

Personalized gifts are an interesting challenge in our home. My long-suffering children have the unusual kind of first names that turn heads in the grocery store when I’m hollering for one of them to climb down from the produce bins. Which means we aren’t exactly overrun with items bearing their names.

Still I love their names. Dearly. I helped choose them, after all. So I can only imagine how sentimental a gift like the personalized throw pillow from RedEnvelope would make me.

Imagine: a simple cotton throw pillow emblazoned with all the reasons they love me and, as an added bonus, their beautiful names below? Pretty super Mother’s Day gift, if you ask me.

I love the idea of a dad or grandparent sitting with his kids and making notes on all the reasons they love their mom. What a keepsake that pillow would be. And the pride the children would feel seeing their ideas and names in print on a real pillow? Well, I think they’d feel pretty special indeed. -Stephanie S.
